The Coat of arms is in the center of the white band, the crest has 6 yellow stars (representing the mainland and 5 offshore islands) above a grey shield that bears a silk-cotton tree and below it there is a scroll that reads UNIDAD, PAZ, JUSTICIA (Unity, peace, justice) The blue stands the sea linking the mainland to the aforementioned islands, green is the tropical forests, and natural riches, white stands for peace and red for the blood that was shed in their fight for independence. La bandera de Guinea Ecuatorial In the urban areas of Equatorial Guinea, people eat three meals a day, in other more rural places; they usually have a light meal about mid-morning and then a larger one before dark. A traditional recipe starts with flour made from cassava (a woody shrub) that us used in many dishes, is turned into a porridge or spiced as a side dish with added herbs, mushrooms, snails, plantains and skewered chicken. Receta Popular Familia Family is very important as well as the clan. In the Fang clan, the man can have more than one wife and they can marry outside of the clan. In the Bubi clan, men marry within the clan. They place importance on girl; they think the girls are the eyes of the home. Most of the children in Equatorial Guinea live in villages where days begin early. School children wake up early in the morning, usually before sunrise, and trek to retrieve fresh water for the family before heading to school. Some children have to walk over 5 kilometers to reach school. Classes start at 7:30, the lessons are usually 40 minutes long with a recess break at 10:30 to allow the children to catch up with their friends from neighbouring villages followed by a lunch break. The attendance of girls is a cultural problem due to traditional practices that impede the girl’s ability to go to school. School ends at 3:30 or 4 pm and the children race home to assist their parents with the evening chores and head to bed around 8 because there is little light to stay up and do anything else.

Females wear brightly coloured skirts with African patterns, blouses, and polished shoes. Those who have very little money usually go barefoot. Among girls, tailored dresses are popular. Children wear shorts jeans and a tee shirt. Head scarves are quite common as well. La moda de Guinea Ecuatorial This woman is wearing the traditional dress of
